Want to work in Kannada films only, says Kantara star Rishabh Shetty

ndian cinema is going through a transitional phase and these days it is common for Bollywood actors to appear in South Indian movies and vice versa. However actor Rishabh Shetty who was recently seen in the film 'Kantara' says that he has no aspirations to work in Bollywood and that he is looking forward to take Kannada industry to new heights.

Apart playing the lead, Rishabh also wrote and directed 'Kantara' which has earned around 400 crore rupees so far. While speaking at Times Now Summit 2022, the actor stated, " I would want to do Kannada films because they were the one that gave me the platform for being an actor, director, and writer. The reason for the success of Kantara is the Kannada industry and the people there. I am here because of them. So, I want to make only Kannada films. But if it gets the reach, it can be dubbed and released in Hindi and other languages. Languages are not a barrier anymore. I come from this place (Karnataka). It’s my ‘karma bhoomi’.”

Talking about the difficulties he faced while working on the 'Kantara', Rishabh said, "While making it, we didn’t really thing about the challenges, but when people ask me now, I just think about the hurdles faced. The film was made in a span of one year. We started shooting last September (2021) and it was out this September 30. We shot for about 96 days of which we worked for 18 hours for almost 55 days. We shot all night.”
